There were several discusions about the sense that upstream maintains
a downloadable copy of the Debian package or provides the debian/
directory in the upstream archive.  The result was that this is a
bad idea because it requires more work for upstream to keep on watching
the Debian development and the maintainer to push his development
to upstream.  Just mentioning that there is a Debian package and putting
a link on the upstream web site is fine.  Everything else just
produces more work and confusion if there are different package versions

Kind regards
